Don Juan 04-086
Canto the Fourth
"As for the men, they are a middling set;
 The Musico is but a crack'd old basin,
But being qualified in one way yet,
 May the seraglio do to set his face in,
And as a servant some preferment get;
 His singing I no further trust can place in:
From all the Pope makes yearly 't would perplex
To find three perfect pipes of the third sex.

George Gordon Byron, Lord Byron (1788-1824)
